Prior to joining the BBDO network, Jones was a senior account manager at Laughlin Constable in Chicago. Jones moves up from his position as business director.

Clemenger BBDO Melbourne managing director, Simon Lamplough, said in a statement: “Since joining the agency as a business director, Billy has really impressed with his passion for creativity. Clients love him, his team loves him and he’s helped build and exciting pipeline of work for Mars that we are looking forward to brining to market.”

Jones stated: “Being in the BBDO network for some time now, I started realising that most of the work that made me jealous was coming out of Clemenger BBDO Melbourne.

“A couple of years ago I had a goal to get to this office, and to see if I had what it takes to cut it at one of the best agencies in the world. To be able to get here and then to get acknowledged here has been incredibly gratifying, and I can’t wait for the next set of challenges along the way.”
